    • Hi,

      Can you give me more details on this?  What do you mean by IPv6-resources?

    • Sorry for not having checked back on this issue. Private matters came up.

      To clarify: with IPv6-resources I mean webservers on the internet, that are only accessible by IPv6.

      I do use a tunnel from Hurricane Electric to get IPv6 connectivity, which uses 6to4. However, other browsers don’t seem to have a problem with that, and can connect to IPv6-resources without a problem.

      Remark: It’s not a DNS issue. Entering the IPv6 address instead of the domain name produces the same problem.

    • Hi, I am using a Hurricane Electric tunnel and Microsoft Edge does connect to an IPv6 Internet site such as https://loopsofzen.uk .

      I also can say that Microsoft Edge does not function properly with an IPv6 internet proxy server. IE, Firefox, and Chrome successfully function, but not Microsoft Edge. It should be noted that I am using a proxy.pac /wpad.dat file with the commands that function with IPv6.

      I can easily confirm the status of the connection by using netstat.

    • Hi James,

      are you setting up the tunnel on the same computer that you’re using Edge on? It works on my other computer which has native IPv6 connectivity from the provider, but the one that I use a tunnel on will not work with Edge browser.
